Through community programming, events, and media, the Center for Public Philosophy aims to empower the general public with the tools and insights of philosophy and the science of cognition, in order to help foster more thoughtful and engaged communities of thinkers, doers, and change makers.

Our team is comprised of students, professors, scientists, and artists; philosophers, animators, citizens, and community leaders.  What brings us all together is that we all believe in the power and importance of thinking—often and carefully—about thinking itself.

In the current political climate of growing uncertainty and division, our commitment to bringing greater attention to the complexities of thinking and reasoning is more important than ever.
